I named the hot salsa: Piperz because my newest baby girl's name is Piper (she's a gem and 1.5 years old--so sweet). Here's my homemade salsa recipe. Warning this is very HOT. Cut back on the number of peppers for a milder salsa.

Directions

  1. Place all peppers in sauce pan. Bring to boil. Boil for 4 minutes. Remove stems. Place peppers in food processor & puree on high speed, seeds & all.
  2. Dump peppers in large bowl.
  3. Add salt to peppers.
  4. Place tomatoes in food processor. Depending on size of processor, you may need to do this a few times. Juice and all from the two 24 oz cans of tomatoes. High speed.
  5. * add a helping of cilantro in to each tomato blend. Only the top's (leaves) of the cilantro. Roughly 10 leaves per tomato blending. My processor is small so it takes about 3 batches to get all the tomatoes blended/processed.
  6. * Add salt, garlic powder, cumin & fresh squeezed lime to each batch of tomatoes you process.
  7. Dump tomatoes in with peppers in large bowl.
  8. Mix all ingredients with large spatula till well blended.
  9. Done! Serve & enjoy. with your favorite chips or on a warm tortilla rolled up. Also good to add salsa to small curd cottage cheese, add some chopped bell pepper to the cottage cheese. Yummy!
  10. This salsa taste just like something you'd get at a fine Mexican restaurant. It reminds me of the salsa served at On The Border restaurants. It's hot, but you can't stop eating it.
  11. If you make it. do let me know what you think of it.
  12. This recipe will make about 2 quarts.
